The Chellaston Lighthouse shop officially opened on 13th February 2013. The event was well attended by the local community and press with Rev BJ Facey from St Peter’s Church, Chellaston cutting the ribbon. Since the opening of the shop, it has had amazing support from the community offering to volunteer and also from people wishing to donate goods to the shop. The shop is going from strength to strength and was recently awarded the Valley CIDS Shop of the Month Award for March 2013 with the certificate being presented by Dorothy Whitaker, CEO and Founder of the charity.
